Hotel Fires Employee for Releasing Jay Z and Solange Fight Video
Page Six reports that the employee shopped around the video for five days before receiving the huge offer of $250,000, which was paid by TMZ.
A representative from the posh Manhattan hotel released the following statement about the incident.
“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” said the rep. “The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies. The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities.”
It’ll be interesting to find out who released the video, and what criminal charges will be brought against him or her. Unfortunately, that big money will be fast money, since that person will need the $250,000 to live off of after being fired, and there’s those legal fees that are likely to come as a result of breaching security policies.
